Professor Dennis Sharp is a practising architect and university lecturer. he has many publications to his credit and has won several awards for his architectural writings.From Library Journal:
This chronology by British architect Sharp is a survey of the world's most significant architecture from 1900 to 1990. Arranged by decade, it is an enlargement of the author's Visual History of Twentieth-Century Architecture ( LJ 2/15/73). An excellent ready-reference tool, well illustrated and with a good index, this greatly expanded edition provides information on such milestones as the Sydney Opera House, the Centre Pompidou, and the Musee d'Orsay--as well as private residences, commercial and industrial buildings, churches, stadiums, and other types of structures. Each chapter contains introductory material on both the technological and social problems and aesthetic characteristics of the decade. Sharp covers about 550 buildings he considers significant, and although fewer than 100 are in the United States, this is still an excellent book for most art and public libraries.
